Open day is full of clas­sic mem­o­ries

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Tom Herbert tom.herbert@trin­i­tymir­

ACARE home held a clas­sic car show on Satur­day (June 20) which ‘got a re­ally good re­sponse’ as el­derly gen­tle­men were able to re­live their mem­o­ries.

Chal­font Lodge Care Home, in Chal­font St Peter, held the event for the sec­ond time as part of a na­tion­wide care home open day scheme.

Hay­ley Clark, one of the ac­tiv­i­ties co- or­di­na­tors, said: “It went re­ally well. We got a re­ally good re­sponse, it par­tic­u­larly nice be­cause a lot of gen­tle­men re­ally en­joyed it.” She added: “A lot of peo­ple were rem­i­nisc­ing about the var­i­ous dif­fer­ent cars.

“It was a re­ally nice op­por­tu­nity for them to re­live their youth and go back to the mem­o­ries of days gone by.”

Luck­ily for Miss Clark “the weather just held out,” with one man even leav­ing his clas­sic Jaguar there for the day af­ter see­ing the sign on the side of the road.

Peo­ple were also able to take part in quizzes and car themed games as 60s car film The Ital­ian Job played in the back­ground, which, ac­cord­ing to Miss Clark, “went well”.
